Jumper Wire Assembly Aids

Jumper Wire Assembly Aids | 4 March, 2004

Counting leads to attach jumper wires, especially on large, fine pitch quads can be quite a challenge. Is anyone aware of any kinds of assembly aids that would assist in this process? I was thinking of inspection templates with the particular lead(s) marked to point to a more precise group of leads, or the exact lead itself. Or, does anyone have any other ideas and has anyone had this similar issue?

If an OEM and room is available on the PCB....have pin location aids silk screened on the boards. Groups of 10 are typical.

might look like

1.........10.........20.........30

continue this around the device.

Otherwise, ???
